Not only does VW’s hot hatch concept for this year’s Wörthersee festival look amazing with its gull-wing doors, it rocks a hybrid AWD drivetrain that puts out a blistering 521 horsepower and 500 lb-ft. of torque. Please make this, VW.
This custom version of Audi’s TT 2+2 has been blessed with an electrically-enhanced turbocharging system which turns its small 2.5L 5-banger into a 600hp monster that does 0-to-60 in 3.6 secs, and tops out at 192mph. Dat wing.
The fastest street-legal Viper yet is powered by a hand-built 645hp 8-liter V10, rocking a massive rear wing, race suspension, and carbon ceramic brakes. This beast is sure to eat pavement like nobody’s business.

Despite its tremendous torque, it’s not exactly easy to make a Tesla Model S go sideways, Japanese pro drifter Nobuteru Taniguchi proves that it’s at least sort of possible as he burns rubber in the electric executive sedan.

A trio of drivers meet along a road and decide to play a little “ring around the rosie” with their tuners. We’re duly impressed that none of the three cars made contact, but then again, we only got to see 15 seconds of the festivities.
Based on the Ford SVT Raptor, the Shelby Baja 700 adds a Whipple supercharger to the 6.2L V8 engine, upping its output to over 700hp. It also has an upgraded suspension, 3″ King rear shocks, custom 18×9 wheels and the sweet Cobra stripes.
